Leaving Bailey Island

It is with greatly mixed feelings that we packed up to leave Bailey Island. Three weeks in the cottage by the sea were too short, and we wish we could have more terrific weekends with our hosts Susan and Adam. The sun was shining brightly, the water is crystal clear (but much colder), and the island still seems full of little surprises we haven't yet had time to tease out. We will certainly be back next year!

But when you have an Airstream an adventure is around every corner, and we are gearing up for the biggest one of all. In just a couple of weeks we will be in Jackson Center picking up the new trailer and starting the Tour of America. Between now and then, we have just a few small tweaks to get Vintage Thunder ready for its new owner, and we'll be making stops in Vermont, New York, and Ohio, before our final stop at the Airstream factory.

So although the end of the Vintage Thunder blog is near, we'll have another seven months of adventure to recount in our new website. I'll be able to announce the URL in a couple of weeks.
